"I've taken more reps in this camp than probably the last three years all combined," Bortles said. "That was something in talking with Coach Marrone and Coach [Nathaniel] Hackett that I knew they had done that in the past. They had their reasons and philosophies on why they do it. I totally agree with it."

- The Jaguars picked up Bortles' fifth-year contract option Monday.
- According to general manager David Caldwell, the Jaguars have not yet decided whether to exercise the fifth-year option of Bortles' contract, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports.
